Nicole Eggert‘s appearance changed during the filming of Baywatch – and it might have been because of costar Pamela Anderson.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Baywatch‘s original producers, Michael Berk and Douglas Schwartz, opened up about the show – which will soon hit the big screen.

“[Nicole Eggert] felt a little bit competitive with Pam,” Berk told the magazine. “She had a beautiful athletic body but didn’t have big boobs at all. Maybe she was feeling a little bit of pressure. There was a holiday weekend and for a couple of days she called in sick afterward. Then she showed up back on the set having gotten a boob job.”

Schwartz added that her mid-show boob job caused some problems during filming.

“I had already shot scenes with her with small breasts,” Schwartz said. “She came in and was wearing a jacket. I said, ‘Nicole, you can’t wear that. We already shot part of that scene before and you don’t have a jacket on, remember?’ She wanted to wear that jacket and I couldn’t figure out why. And then finally, when she took off the jacket, she had these giant double Ds. I didn’t know what to do. I had to put things in front of her and hide her for the rest of the episode.”

Last April, Eggert appeared on an episode of “Botched,” where she got a breast reduction. In the episode, she reveals what would happen if she ever donned the iconic red bathing suit again.

“If I had to run in that bathing suit with these boobs, they would be, like, hitting me in the face,” she said.

The new movie, based on the 80s drama, stars Zac Efron and Dwayne Johnson. It is set to premiere in May 2017.
